tragedy to a law office in san francisco in 1993. where a crazed gunman -- i remember his name but i won't say it -- with an assault weapon killed eight people and wounded six. one of those people was a brave warrior who threw his body over the body of his wife, sacrificing his own life to save hers. now, that young man was one of my son's best friends, and i know personally how these horrific and senseless tragedies live on with the survivors. the parents, the spouses, the children, the family and the friends. it changes their lives and it pierces their hearts forever. so i've told you a couple of stories about california, but let me say this. let's look at what's happened across this nation since sandy hook. in the 120 days since sandy hook, more than 2,200 americans have been killed by gun violence. hardly anyplace was spared. now, we know there are many, many firearms in america. 300 million firearms in the united states. if you were to divide that up, that would be one gun per person. of course, there are many people who just have many, many guns. now, this is a 50% increase in the

suspects either being identified or being in custody is because these photos began circulating among law enforcement and there was confusion about whether or not there had been arrest but about the fact that there have been suspects or persons of interest who have been identified or at least isolated by law enforcement. >> bill: so you have seen the photos, rick, and based on the imknowledges you saw, how clear are the faces on these photos? >> they are pretty clear. there are multiple angles and you can definitely see their faces. and i hope and i believe that law enforcement using those photos can positively identify the men and whether or not they're the men who are actually responsible remains to be seen. >> quickly, rick, we have also learned earlier tod that investigators found more possible parts from the bomb. what's different today than from last night on that? >> well, you know, we know that these crime scene technicians have been on scene on boilston street for days now, collecting evidence, including apparently the lid from a pressure cooker that blew up on to one of the roof
pot, how do you rise boff your station. for me it was the profession of law. i didn't know what a lawyer's life would be. >> imus: so you got a scholarship to nyu. >> yes. >> imus: academic? >> yes. >> no, don, it was football. >> imus: and then a scholarship to harvard law? >> i got a scholarship to harvard law. because of though scholarships, now that's what i do with my primary giving back is really i've endowed a school in my name at nyu for those that want to study music and make it a profession. >> imus: when you graduated from harvard law, what did you do want to do? >> i was ready to go be a lawyer. i chose a small law firm because i was somewhat tired of the competition. you know, the new york city and the school system is intense. but i found that the small law firm with the biggest client gets merged or bought, you're vulnerable. to i applied to a law firm that represented columbia records and cbs. this was my first lucky break. >> imus: w, at this point in life what role did music play? >> i was just a regular music listener. i didn't collect records. when i look aro
are rampant at all of this times. i actually always find it best to just let the law enforcement officials do their job first. they did not need have rumors or innuendoes thrown around by public officials like me. that does not help the situation. host: what are you doing today? what will guest: your agenda my dad will be tried to stay on top of this as best as possible so they can pass information to others. today's the second most important day for those law enforcement people to do their investigation. they have to get this done as quickly as possible as evidence is available. god forbid if anyone is responsible and thinking about doing this again, before they strike again. host: is that a possibility? guest: you never know. those of the kind of things i like to stay away from. something you can do something like this is certainly an evil and crazy person. you never know what is on the mind of people. they almost always turn out to be, by any normal in definition of the term, insane. you cannot understand what would drive someone to kill innocent people. violence is a part of life, people
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
and arrested two people and charged them with terrorism related offenses. it involves canadian law enforcement agencies, f.b.i. and the department of homeland security. in syria nearly a week of fighting near the capitol left reportedly more than 100 people dead. activists say it could be much higher. an opposition group putting the number at nearly 500. the syrian government said the troops have been carrying out an offensive against terrorists n two districts of the city. >> we are using the state tv pictures of the aftermath of the fighting because the authorities did not allow the bbc to visit the town. syrian television said local people welcomed terrorists ncluding foreign jihaddists. what is not clear is how many died, civilians and the rebel fighters who are showing defiance by youtube last week. opposition sources called it a massacre. britain condemned. >> the world is not doing enough. the world failed so far in its responsibilities to the syrian people. this is a barbaric way of waging any conflict and should be absolutely unacceptable to the world. >> this is just out of domascus
me a note if they got a free golf cart. it was the law of the land, if you got one you deserved it. but so abused was that tax provision, mr. speaker, that the nd of 2010 the i.r.s. released tax guidance that said, we wanted you to have to take deliver riff these golf carts before the end of 2010 to get the tax credit, but the demand has been so great the manufacturers cannot do it fast enough, you need a v.i.n. number and you can take delivery in 2011. that's not the way the american tax code ought to be used, mr. speaker. it's not the way american tax dollars ought to be used. there are so many challenges we have in the american economy. and so many reasons that american made products cost more than the products that our competitors produce overseas, and so many of those reasons we do not want to change. the fact that american wages are higher than chinese wages, i want to celebrate that. i tonight want to beknown that. the fact that environmental regulations in america are stricter and protect us in ways that environmental regulations in india do not, do i not want to beknown th
under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams is live with us right now. i know you've been reviewing these charges. what's the latest on what you've uncovered? >> it is a fairly interesting sequence of things that the government cites here as evidence. first of all they say that there was a surveillance tape that shows what apparently is the second suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, the man in the hospital, placing the bomb at the second bombing. this is unrelated picture to what i'm talking about now. but this is the person we're talking about. but the surveillance tape was taken at the scene of the second bombing. you may recall that there was a restaurant there called the foreign restaurant. they say a surveillance camera there shows him walking up to the restaurant with his backpack on. that he takes a cell phone off, seems to be using it for a while, then seems to be
for that video to be submitted to law-enforcement. that was a very effective member -- and effective method. morning's "wall street journal," -- you say no? guest: the identification was fairly quick and effective. there were numerous sources online. enforcement tow quickly anidentify the suspects. -- butoston best investigators you did -- boston investigators used a video from various sources. in the fourth amendment it hinges on the idea you have kept reasonable expectation of privacy. do you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you are walking on a public street? a tricky question. oftentimes it comes down to this question. you do not have an expectation of privacy in a public street. but you also did not have the expectation that everything you say and do is going to be recorded, that that recording is going to be retained indefinitely, perhaps catalogued in a database in the federal government. he did not have the expectation that every one of your conference stations are going to be recorded in kept forever. this is a tricky and thorny question that comes up with the surveill
requiring background checks for people who buy guns at gun shows and over the internet. under current law, background checks are required only for sales handled by licensed gun dealers. 60 votes were required because that is what it would take to overcome a republican-led filibuster. all but four republicans opposed the background check amendment. it was a resounding victory for the powerful national rifle association and its supporters, including republican chuck grassley of iowa. >> expanded background checks would not have prevented newtown. criminals do not submit to background checks now, they will not submit to expanded background checks. >> reporter: senators were lobbied this week by the president and former congresswoman gabrielle giffords. many newtown parents who lost children in the elementary school massacre came to the capitol. last week, they met with senator joe manchin of west virginia. he's a gun rights supporter but also the cosponsor of the background check amendment. after meeting with the parents, he said this: >> i'm a parent. i'm a grandparent. i can't imagine. i j
-qaeda. any indication from your law enforcement sources that they have any suspicions at this point? >> what i hear at this point in time is they can't rule anything out. it's way too early in the game. they have to look at this device, they have to look at how it is built, they have to look at how devices over in the middle east were built and have been utilized. and pressure cooker bombs have been used in the middle east,@% especially pakistan. they know that. but they also, as i said, it's a very common bomb, if you will. so they have to look at everything. as one person said to me, what was the message of the bomber? what were they trying to say? it's very hard to rule out for anybody at this point in time, the date. it was tax day, it was four or five days before the anniversary of waco. it was patriots day in boston and this was a celebration that was honoring the newtown victims. there's a lot of american, if you will, symbolism around all the elements of the bombing that all the investigators are looking at right now. they start with the forensics, they start with the components and
community and the attacks are impossible for the federal law enforcement community to stop. so how to make ourselves more resilient? the steps we need to take are not that sexy. we need to upgrade our transit systems and infrastructure so as to make them less vulnerable to attacks. for example, flynn notes the u.s. navy has invested more in protecting the single port of san diego that is home to the pacific fleet than the department of homeland security has invest ed in the ports of ls angeles, long beach, san francisco, oakland, seattle, and tacoma combined, upon which a bulk of the u.s. economy relies. we must strengthen recovery in the event of a biological attack, which is still the most worrying threat out there. we need to make sure that the public understands the nature of these threats and how it can help identify and respond to them. above all, it needs to understand how not to respond to them. when bad things happen, it's easy to react out of fear, emotion and anger. let's hope that in boston this week we begin to chart a different course. for more on this, you can read my column
criminal justice and law enforcement. they have to prioritize national security. fourth, they have to be proactive in disrupting plots. fifth, we need new technology. we are seeing cameras and local communities, sensors. we will probably seek a fierce debate in the united states about commercial drones and how active those can be, and trying to make sure civil liberties and protections for our civil liberties and civil rights are set up so that we can use them or may not be able to use them. >> that, of course, is always a balance. what is the time frame you are looking at now? >> 50 forensics is under way. the search for seized -- the forensics is under way. the search for cc tv is under way. it could take a long, long time, especially if someone has made it out of the country or has been very careful in how they have done this. it is very open-ended and very difficult to predict. >> and no one has claimed responsibility. i'm afraid i will have to leave it there. thank you for coming in. there will be more than 30 marathons around the world next weekend, and the events in boston h
happened including american support for -- as a law enforcement and intelligence practitioner is inclusiveness in america. as a law enforcement tool, i worried all along when i was in the business that americans would start to say as a result of events like this that there are real americans and other americans. that kind of mentality if we ever get it will accelerate i think these cases of radicalization. kids like this when they take the oath will say i took the oath but i'm still not accepted. >> to what exstent one of the dangers here? one can overread too much. these may be two cases of a bad situation. to what extent might be assimilation machine in the u.s. be broken down or not functioning as well as it used to. in europe, minority communities were excluded marginalized but not in the united states. the polling data suggests that. but does this tell us maybe we should pay attention to that? >> compared to what? the assimilation mod until the united states works marvelously compared to france or germany or great britain. if you look back in history, the irish, the jews,
dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals that can contradict at times. now we must step back from the incessant drumbeat of breaking news t
the decision and, of course, i'm not second-guessing anybody. i did talk to a law enforcement officer over the weekend who, first of all, said, you know, it would have been much better for us all if this had been plotted out of a cave in afghanistan instead of, you know, an apartment in cambridge. >> one among us. >> yeah, one among us. but also he was saying not so sure about them shutting down the entire city and the message that that sends. you talk about copycats. the copycat said if i do something particularly heinous, i can hold an entire city hostage. >> one of the purposes of terrorists is to disrupt and forcing a city shut down and the rest, she used that end in addition to killing and injurying that you do. one of the reasons -- i don't want to second-guess the tactical decision to lock down boston. but i don't think this is something that if you will a scaleable or sustainable. >> no, we can't do this. >> imagine these guys hadn't been captured and all that. >> after what happened to the boston marathon in an internationally visible way. we were covering this all morning long. i
and sedated. >> all the law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives because we have many questions. those questions need to be answered. >> in this photograph taken right after his arrest, the college student's neck area appears covered with blood. the younger brother'ses cape was busted when a man found him hiding in his backyard boat. thermal images shows a white image of an object projecting heat. in another still photo you can make out the suspect's feet in black lying in the boat. a robotic arm moves in and lifts the tarp. . the police chief tells wolf blitzer about those moments. >> we began negotiations that way. over a long period of time, we were able to finally get him to surrender. >> agents yell at him to give himself up. police say there was an exchange of gunfire. authorities said his injuries came during thursday night's shootout when his brother was killed. agents spent the day combing over every inch of the boat collecting blood, hair and more to build a case against the suspected boston marathon bomber. and today prosecutors
constructed, authorities calling them crude but deadly. >> reporter: a law enforcement official tells cbs news, the bombs that exploded near the finish line of the boston marathon, were built and put into place to look like pieces of trash. the devices were put inside pressure cookers and placed inside bag. the pots were packed with nails and small metal pellets. >> we were maybe 10 feet from the explosion. >> reporter: nicholasiani and his wife are among those being treated for shrapnel injuries and pierced ear drums. >> i couldn't hear much. it was a lot of muffled, ringing sounds. >> more than 170 people were hurt. several lost limbs. three people were killed, including 8-year-old martin richards. president obama called the bombings a cowardly act. >> if you want to know who we are, who mark is, how we respond to evil, that's it. selflessly, compassionately, unafraid. >> reporter: surveillance cameras like this one nearby the crime scene are proving crucial to investigators. they are using them, combined with any photos they can find nhopes of-- in hopes of catching the suspect. >> reporter
. >> i would like to recognize the postal and law enforcement officials for their excellent work in detecting and preventing this threat before it even reached the capitol. they proved the proactive measures we put in place do in fact work. >> reporter: and this fbi operations bulletin we have excuse i havely obtained that all exposed individuals are asymptomic which means they're not sick. that is good news because ricin poison can be deadly and there is no antidote for it. jon? jon: any idea who sent the letter? >> reporter: this bulletin says the fbi is following up on multiple leads about potential senders but their investigation continues. last night we herd democratic senator claire mccaskill from missouri say, her understanding was that investigators were zeroing in on someone who is known to send in the past lawmakers a lot of letters. sources have told us that authorities have a general idea where this person might be. we don't know their identity. we know now two letters, jon, one sent to senator wicker, one sent to president obama. now we're awaiting a final tests from
, law enforcement officials are keeping a very close eye on the internet, specifically sites that show people how to make destructive devices. nbc's senior investigative correspondent lisa myers has that part of the story, good morning. >> matt, good morning to you. regardless of who committed this atrocity it's clear these days that anyone with a grievance and the will can learn how to become a terrorist simply by going online. now authorities are trying to use some of these sites to their advantage. the latest evidence bomb makers have taken their teachings to the web this online al qaeda publication posted last month, a guide to carrying out terror attacks including detailed illustrated recipes for pressure cooker bombs, the kind investigators say was used in boston. >> the internet has brought terrorism to the web. it's made it go viral. anybody can look online and find out how to make a bomb. it is a frightening development. >> a similar terrorist manual, how to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom, was posted three years ago. prosecutors say it was used by this former muslim-am
by will you -- must include the contributions of the transgendered? by law. you will have to have pages on transgendered contributions. people who were crossed over sex, or dressed in the other sex. clothing. isn't that absurd? isn't that totalitarian? i thought the purpose of the textbook was to tell the truth, not make groups feel good. but as i point out in the book, leftism is overwhelmingly rooted in feelings. >> host: dennis prager is the author. "still the best hope" is the name of his recent best seller. louis from florida, you're on the air. you're talking with dennis prager. >> caller: i'd like to ask mr. prayinger and his ilk what he just said about truth, why should people believe the bible when that's the biggest novel ever written? who believes the earth is 5,000 years old? how can you follow a book that tells you the world is 5,000 years old and hisclass commentary about the christian schools and the seminary, how does he say something like that and he wants to be honest? i know this man is a right winger, and he wouldn't fifth credit to anybody, but my main question is,
. foreign investment law was passed in november of last year. that was a real smile tone for foreigners, especially western companies who i think for the past year to about 18 months have been seeing this as the last frontier market in asia. and the sanctions, although exactly as you rightly put out, there are other things that still need to be done in the country from a political point of view. definitely the lifting of sanctions is a very strong signal to the international community. >> so if you're in europe right thou looking at this opportunity in myanmar, now the sanctions have been lifted. i imagine there are still some pretty intense headwinds. what might those be? >> well, i think one thing that you still have to bear in mind is that while the eu sanctions may have been lifted, there is still what we call a designated lift that the u.s. still has in place. and under that, there are a whole list of business necessary myanmar that they can't do business with. and many eu companies, also for reputational reasons, they may not want to engage with those businesses. so that's still s
